"Those are bonus points".
The Bills offense continued its anemic ways in being held to under 7 points for the fourth time this season - once more than that's happened from 2013-17.
When the Bills offense took the field in the first quarter, they ran the wildcat, where a running back is lined up at quarterback. "Defenses know I still can play". Even though the Bills didn't blitz Brady a ton, they were able to get a good amount of pressure on him with no fear of the Patriots rushing attack.
Buffalo's secondary - in particular, corner Tre'Davious White - will need to play at a high level. "I thought the defense came out and played well at times".
As several teams bolstered their playoff hopes with moves on a frenetic trade deadline day, the Buffalo Bills made a very Buffalo Bills transaction.
The big man is a force multiplier for the Patriots offense, with him on the field, opponents have to focus on stopping him and it allows for other receivers to get free and face single coverage, where he's frequently doubled.
I guess we'll just have to wait another long year before Buffalo finally gets things together.More news: Affordable Care Act Marketplace open enrollment begins

AFTER THE game, coach Sean McDermott said Anderson was being evaluated, and offered no speculation, though it wouldn't be stunning if he ends up in concussion protocol. At 3:04 of the third quarter, Kyle Van Noy stripped sack Anderson. The Bears compiled 427 total yards and 29 first downs, but they committed three turnovers on two Jay Cutler interceptions and a Brandon Marshall fumble that the Bills converted into 13 points.
It is all about the quarterbacks for Sean McDermott's side, as Week One starter Nathan Peterman lasted 18 passes before he was yanked, rookie Josh Allen has been extremely inconsistent (as expected) and they made a decision to pick up Derek Anderson rather than go back to Peterman after Allen suffered an elbow injury. The team will bench Gordon for about one quarter in its Week 8 matchup with the Bills.
